I am looking to get the meth kit for my car soon.

I am on the PWG 328i.

I already have the ER chargepipe and will be adding a FMIC soon.

Running the stage 2 at the moment,

What else will I need?

How hard is the installation? Possible to DIY?

Installation is quite simple. That's all you need.

Are the gains on your site for stage1 dyno represent the same for F25 X3 28i ?

thanks

I've tried searching for X3 on the forum with no results, trying to see others result.

Not many of them out there, you may have better luck on an X3 specific forum.

I had a customer report his volume control map switching isn't working with the new EWG firmware. I tested it here and it seemed fine. Can any EWG users confirm the map switching is working as it should be?

Terry,

What's the meaning of PWM on EWG cars since we don't have the vacuum control solenoid? Or it means just the same thing?

Thanks

Should I get the EWG cable for my N26 328? Does it really make any difference on Map 1 or 2 or is it better for my engine? Sounds like Terry is saying it only makes a difference on heavily modified cars, not stock cars running 93 oct.

Installed ewg harness today and I'm a little confused on settings, so before I jump in enjoying my car , I wanted to clarify few things. I have 320i manual with bms stage 2 , fuel flex wires , er down pipe n now ewg

Because on first page says only map 5 and ff adaption to 0

So with this new EWG upgrade can I use map 1 and 5, and as far as I understood I should have pid gain 10, autoshiftreduction 10 n ff waste gate 50, correct?
I apologize for asking this I know it's on first page but I just don't understand it 100%, better be safe than sorry later.

Anyway last quick question is about logging, do I just connect my laptop to bms tune, schoose start logging, disconnect laptop drive around and do hard pulls on 3rd gear , than just safe data??

Thanks for great work and support Terry

Hey guys a little confuse here debating on whether to go with Stage1 or Stage2, I'm not a big modder by any means but want to get the most out of my N20 BMW X3 28i engine while keep components stock and using the best tune available.

There's a dyno showing a 2012 328i with stage1 257HP 280 tq, then there's a another dyno graph shows stage1 on N26 test car 2012 328 pump gas 264hp 291tq, race gas 283hp 317tq. (first image)
But the stage1 vs stage2 comparison shows 257hp|280tq vs 268hp|302tq .. so does this means the N26 is achieving more hp/tq on stage1 than N20 is ? (at the bottom)

N20 and N26 use the same firmware.
